Officers were called to the area of West Jefferson and South Yellow Springs streets on a suspected overdose on Thursday evening, according to court records. After the woman was revived with eight doses of Narcan, she told police she had been at a room at the Town House Motor Lodge where she came in contact with a white powder substance she had wiped off of a table and into a trash can. She also told police there was a small child in the room at the time, records said.

Police then performed a welfare check on the 3-year-old child, whom they found on the bed while Bevington was taking a shower, records said.

On a side table, officers allegedly found foil wrapped up like bindles, as well as a $100 bill in a coffee can and a black digital scale on top of the microwave. Inside a drawer, police allegedly found a large amount of money, a box with white residue, foil bindles and a foil bindle with a white substance. Police also found marijuana, according to court records, which Crowley allegedly told police he sells to get through hard times.

Police also found a pill bottle with three different types of pills, which Crowley allegedly said he uses for pain.
